One thing healthy living bloggers love to post about is eating healthy at the airport and packing a personal arsenal of protein bars for when you are at the airport. Personally I can’t think of any worse time than before you board a plane than to eat a bunch of stuff that will make you gassy like salads or bars filled with fiber or maltitol.
I decided to stop obsessing over “eating healthy” at the airport and went HAM just buying junk at the airport bar on one trip and then getting a Big Mac and fries on the way back.
The result is I was able to take two cross country flights in economy class without much upset and without hunger or crankiness. I fully attribute this to Eating The Food.
Some without an iron clad stomach may not be able to do this, but fortunately I can.
I can usually find a ready-made sandwich to eat and some milk. They have this in airports, and along the New Your State Thruway, where I will be traveling tomorrow. Ice cream is also easy to find. This stuff isn’t perfect, but it is fine until I reach my destination.
